This week I am grateful for these things:

1.  Melinda, Tyler and their little one were honoured at a baby shower in Nova Scotia today and Linda (the hostess) shared wonderful pictures online as soon as the party was over!  This is the quilt she made for "Shim" - a whole winter's project!  How I wish we could have been there to share in the fun.

2.  Safe travels as we journeyed to and from Airdrie again this weekend.

3.  A whole long day of scrapbooking with Heather - we both got lots done and enjoyed the company.

4.  Sunshine and +19 today :))

5.  A delicious lunch/brunch with Darrin.  We missed Kelsey who is fighting a cold.

6.  An Mother's Day gala evening with Heather in support of Cause Canada.  (Details to follow.)

7.  Opportunities to use my camera - taken at the mill site in Radium.

8.  Phone calls to my sister - and long chats!

9.  The voices of our grandchildren - on the phone, in person, in conversation, singing, or whispering sweet words to us - like "Gramma, please let's go to the park" or "I had a great day".

10.  Crisp salads.

I hope you have taken time to make a gratitude list - it is such a great way to reflect on the week just past.  And may the week ahead be full of sunshine and God's love!


  1. It was such a fun afternoon and we were totally spoiled. It's overwhelming the generosity and thoughtfulness of friends and family. Thanks for sending your box, too!
    You did have a very eventful week, but full of so many good things. Thanks for sharing. It always makes me feel like I can catch up with you especially during the busy weeks.
    I miss you!

  2. Oh what a great photo of Mel! So glad she had a great day - wish we all could have been there with her. :(

    Thanks so much for all the time you spent with us this weekend! It was so good to see you and hang out with you!
